    Yes here in boring Wisconsin LOL. I am struggling a bit. Still relearning how to eat and what I can eat. Daily struggle. No I did not see about your gallbladder attack! I don't know if that kind of thing is hereditary but it seems like everyone in my family has had their gallbladder removed so I figure my time is coming. Well I hope u have a safe surgery and yes a cruise is what we all need after our surgery drama

    Hey Ann, I just saw your post about the ER visit and complication. I'm sure you're in good spirits but I am irritated for you that your hot gallbladder wasn't diagnosed before surgery. I'm sorry you'll have to endure another surgery. =( Please keep us posted and I hope they take care of it sooner rather than later.

    Thanks for the compliment .. This was in the resale shop . I loved it but it was too small.. But I bought it hoping to eventually fit into it . Still a bit snug but I could not believe I got the zipper up!

Basic Information

About Ann2
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I'm 68 (now 69) and have struggled with overweight since I was 6 years old. I've been heavy, normal, heavier, slim, even heavier, normal, heavier .... You all get it.

I'm married to a wonderful man who supports my VSG journey. My goal is to become as healthy as I can as I head into retirement. I've done so many other things well in my life and refuse to let this problem defeat me.

I invite all the support anyone would like to give and offer mine to others on their VSG journey.
Travel, reading, writing, spending time with my husband

5 Months Post-Op - Down 68 Pounds and New NSVs

by Ann2 on 01-18-2015 at 09:55 AM
After 5 months post-op, this morning I weighed 167.4 pounds. I'm down from 235.6 (which I weighed 2-1/2 months prior to surgery). I've lost 68.2 pounds total (which includes losses from my own pre-op diet and the doc's pre-op diet) and 48.6 pounds since surgery on August 18, 2014.

Weight loss this month slowed to 7 pounds from monthly losses that have averaged 10.5 pounds. Toward the end of Month Four my bariatric P.A. urged me to start raising my daily cals from 800 toward 1,000,

Today is exactly 4 months post-op for me. Since many people want to hear about others' experiences, here are my results so far (all in pounds):

At the first surgeon consultation I weighed 235.6
After my own two-month diet I was down 11.6
After my surgeon's two-week pre-op diet, down another 8.0
1 month post-op, down another 10.4
2 month post-op, down another 11.8
3 months post-op, down another 8.8
4 months post-op, down another 10.4

Two Months Post-Op -- Down 24 Lbs. Post-Op, Down 42 Lbs. Total

by Ann2 on 10-18-2014 at 08:23 AM
And that headline pretty much says it all.

Very, very happy with how it's going. Had a super good VSG surgery and an easy-peasy recovery.

Four weeks post-op, I got a bonus surgery -- gallbladder was removed.

Was hitting protein targets (60-80 grams) by Day Five. Haven't thrown up once. Am now able to drink water easily, almost like pre-op. Energy is coming back strong. Clothes sizes are down from 20 to 16. Looking much cuter.
